This Morning viewers have been left skeptical after a 26-year-old model insisted she’s dating her millionaire boyfriend, 54, for love instead of money.
The seemingly loved-up couple appeared on the daytime programme to convince people they’re in love, despite their 27-year age gap.
Sarah Russi met Mason Reese, a former child actor, at the Chiller Theatre Expo in New Jersey, though they had already been in touch with one another on Facebook ahead of their first meeting.
Cam girl Sarah has been a ‘sugar baby’ in the past but is insistent her love with Mason is real.
However, This Morning viewers were less than convinced by her so-called innocent intentions, with many insisting she’s after his fortune.
One viewer tweeted: ‘Not buying this, sorry she’s deffo after his money,’ while another added: ‘Marry him without a pre-nuptial and have his kids…then I’ll believe you!’
Ahhhhhh… says it all: SHE’S A SUGAR BABY… golddigger 🙄🙄😣#THISMORNING

Speaking to Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield, Sarah revealed what they like to get up to as a couple:
We love to shoot pool, we love to eat at nice restaurants. We cruise around on the mobility scooter.
The pair then went on to discuss their sex life, revealing they sleep together twice a week, although Mason admitted he wishes they did it more.
He told the hosts:
I do have a higher sex drive. I’m a highly sexually-driven guy; I may not look it but I am.
She’s a fairly busy young woman and sometimes at night she’s tired or I’m tired. But we do it maybe twice a week. I might be happier with three.
The couple have now been dating for seven months, but ever since they got together, people have been suspicious of Sarah’s motive.
When she first expressed interest in actually being in a relationship with me I think I was just shocked as anybody.
A lot of people have come out and been like, ‘really you are with that dude, like why? Is it for the money? Is it because he is your sugar daddy?’
Sarah’s never asked me for a penny. She’s bought me beautiful gifts and spent time with me and money on me so I don’t feel that’s the basis of our relationship at all.
The 26-year-old says she gave up being a sugar baby after meeting Mason, explaining:
The idea of being a sugar baby is it can be, like, fun sometimes you know like getting paid $300 (£236) for dinners but ever since I started talking to Mason I just decided that I don’t want that anymore, I just feel like, I’m happy to be in a relationship with him.
I am really happy with Mason. I don’t need to be with him for his money. I usually try to date guys that are in their late 50s, so no he is not the oldest guy that I have dated.
I like older men because they are more mature, I just love the way they look – like I actually like grey hair and bald guys – I don’t know, that is what I am attracted to.
Well, they do say age is just a number…
